About 2,000 years ago, the Roman Empire ruled [Israel], and in suppressing several Jewish rebellions, the Romans destroyed the Jewish temple in the city of Jerusalem, killed large numbers of Jews, and forced many others to leave their homeland in an exodus called "The Diaspora." Some Jews remained in the area, but large numbers of Jews did not return until the 19th and 20th Century, especially after World War Two and the Holocaust.
So......the Palestinians HAVE to pay for what the ROMANS did 2,000 years ago? So...the Palestinians have to uproot their entire culture based on something that happened to the Jews 2,000 years ago? What kind of SENSE does that make? Okay. Then tell Italy to give the Jews some LAND....why is Palestine obligated to do so? They have been there for HOW LONG? If that's the case then the United States should give the Amerindians BACK AMERICA!! Look what the hell the Europeans did to them. They made large amount of them moved from Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia...which states are far more LARGER than what land the Jews had. Are they gonna do that? Hell to the Nawl! And let's not talk about what the Europeans did to Amerindians in South America. So for me....it's TOTALLY unreasonable for the Jews to think that Palestine belongs to them after 2000 focking years. How arrogant
It's beyond arrogant and downright stupid when the 'Jews' that think this aren't even the progeny of the people who actually inhabited the area 2,000 years ago... but the Palestinians ARE... They just happen to be the Semetic folk who converted to Islam at a later date...
It is also not logical/ethical to set up an EXCLUSIVE religious state, because the area has never been EXCLUSIVELY inhabitted by one religion.
